well My wife wanted to have a casual dinner at the Marine room in la Jolla. Now I have not been for 18 years..... since I was in Collage.... but what the heck.... I will keep it short
Wine list is a joke.... Clos du Blos that sells for $9.99 at ralphs that are asking $38. Hietz Cab that sells for about $10 they wanted $48.
Had caesar made table side.... way way over dressed, heavy on the hand with the Anchovy, lite garlic, and to much egg. Neither my wife nor I finished the dish. She had the Steak and Lobster.... 5-6oz filet that was cooked perfectly but the sauce as overly sweet... about a 5 oz lobster tail.... nice and moist but the sauce was a vanilla burre blanc sauce. over all an ok dish, beautifully presented... at $66... hmmmm fairly priced buy not tasty enough... I had the Morel and Artichoke with Gnocchi... It was in a Nage that was way to over powering with a hint of truffle oil. could only eat half...
I would go back for the view, and a glass of wine... but not for the food.... dinner for 2
